Thread Name: Martin 00 wanted.
Subject: RE: Martin 00 wanted.
i own a martin 00-18, with a serial number that puts it early 1922. it is in good original condition, one repaired crack below the bridge.
it is light as a feather. i use it with light silk and steel strings - the guitar is very responsive, remarkably loud for its size but crisp and not muddy sounding at all. very nice! see pictures:
instruments like these are rather difficult to find these days i guess. well, i thought about selling this fine old martin since i play mostly my archtops now. no idea what would be a fair price since i hardly see these pre-1925 martins for sale. offers/suggestions?
